Research in a Practice Setting: An Interim Report on a Community Center Project For Handicapped Children

By Arthur Schwartz

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1963

The program at the Mosholu-Montefiore Community Center, integrating orthopedically handicapped children into the ongoing Junior Program, is unique in that it is one of the few "special" programs preceded by a systematic study of the population to be served. The program was sponsored by a grant from the Association for the Aid of Crippled Children. I was assigned to the staff in June of 1960, and the first handicapped child was not admitted to program until October of 1961. During this time I interviewed a sample of orthopedically handicapped children, in depth, and the findings of the survey (offered in this article) were used by the agency to plan the program.
